Highly recommended day out for everyone. The centre has beautiful grounds to walk around (all wheelchair accessable), to see a variety of wild birds, plus there are flying shows throughout the day with highly trained birds that will delight the whole family. Shows are included in the ticket price, which is very reasonable, and you can choose to watch one or stay for all of them, as different birds are used. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the birds are gorgeous, all in all a brilliant and informative day out!! There is an onsite café, inside and outside seating areas, toilets, disabled access and a pretty good gift shop. As the entrance price is so reasonable, I would encourage everyone to make an extra donation to the centre as it all goes towards feeding and caring for the birds, as they also rescue injured or mistreated birds so every little helps. The only downside is that it isn't and easy place to get to of you don't drive, Newent is a very pleasant small town and you can get a bus into the centre, but you would have to look up and pre-book a local taxi to take you the rest of the way (but it would still be worth doing that for an excellent day out).

We have visited here several times and each time has been great. We now have 2 young lads in our family (9 & 4) and they have developed the same love of birds that we have. They are very knowledgeable for their age and therefore where better to bring them. The day was wonderful despite being a little cold and damp. The variety of birds is exceptional and you can just tell they are loved and cared for. We’ve travelled far and wide to see some wonderful birds in the wild, but coming here is almost as good. The flying displays are just wonderful, spectacular, funny, entertaining and informative - don’t miss them. Will be back soon for sure and our young lads are already asking when we can return.

The flying demonstration is amazing. The birds are obviously well cared for and loved. The staff are so dedicated. I paid for my ticket on arrival, and the young lady took all my personal details, so I assumed that I was gift aiding my money for the ticket, which would have enabled the centre to claim the tax back on my entrance fee and would enable me to visit as often as I wished over the next twelve months. I went back three days later to watch the fling display again, but unfortunately found out that I hadn't gift aided my ticket fee. Unfortunately I wasn't able to visit again and the venue had lost the opportunity to claim the extra cash. Make sure that when you pay to go in, that you ask for your money to be gift aided, thus ensuring that the centre gains the maximum value from you entrance fee.
